For sale: Solar Fire

Added: November 23rd, 2018 Ended: November 28th, 2018
Condition: Partially shopped/refurbished

Item description

This is a nice early run (proto run) Solar Fire. You can tell it is early by the serial number and that some of the lamp inserts are different. The cabinet has been repainted along the front edge by someone so it doesn't match 100%. It was this way when I bought it about 20 years ago. I have a new Repro Backglass installed and this game also comes with a full set of NOS Playfields (both playfields). The NOS playfields are immaculate and these are extremely rare. The playfield in the game is actually in great condition already so I never swapped these out. This is being sold as a package deal and I will not sell the NOS playfields seperately. Game has been in low humidity environment (Colorado/Wyoming) for most of it's life so no moisture damage.

Man, where were you two months ago?

I settled for a machine with some bad wear.

Love this game. Lots of shots for an 80s machine.


Note to buyer - I’m interested in the playfields. But if you keep them please please please get them scanned by cpr and/or the hardtop guys.

Sad I just saw this and someone beat me to the punch. If the buyer wants to part with those NOS playfields then I'd be happy to pay a pretty penny for them to take them off your hands. Feel free to reach out to discuss price. Congrats MHavoc.
